We report a 19-year-old man who presented with 2 weeks history of fever, myalgia, swelling of the face and body and raised serum CK level. Following partial response to steroids, he deteriorated clinically. On admission, he had an ill look, hepatomegaly, muscle weakness and multiple, fluctuant and non-tender subcutaneous swellings of variable size, over the right forearm and left thigh. Diagnostic procedures revealed it to be tropical pyomyositis due to staphylococcus aureus. He improved completely with parenteral cloxacillin. Reporting of such cases will increase awareness.
